Short and Sweet Inspiration

But you already know this, right? The mind is a powerful ally. If we can conceive our dreams, and buy into our thoughtful imaginations, then we can fix our minds on how to make it come to pass. ❤️

Seriously Funny on a Sunday

Happy Sunday, Dear Reader, It is my supreme pleasure to share the best Bible movie I have seen in a long while with you. It’s “Selfie Dad,” and it’s hilarious. I hope you will check it out during your downtime. Ironically I accidentally came upon it (on Prime video) when my pastor, Tim Gilligan, startedContinue reading “Seriously Funny on a Sunday”

Instead of Fear, Try Prevention

Dear Reader, I cannot begin to imagine all the particles and viruses in the air that have the potential to harm our physical bodies. But they exist. And if most of you could see what’s actually all around us, with the potential to take us out, some of you would never leave the house. SomeContinue reading “Instead of Fear, Try Prevention”

The benefit of staying focused

Seeing our ideas 💡 through to the finish creates unimaginable wins. These are the benefits of staying in our lane, at least until we reach our primary goal. “Brilliant ideas pay off and bring you prosperity!” On the flip side, “Making hasty, impatient decisions will only lead to financial loss.” Sounds like wisdom to me.Continue reading “The benefit of staying focused”

For the Fatherless (Another random recap of lessons learned over the weekend especially for ladies with daddy issues)

Fathers better beam like the sun and hang the moon to get more than a card or a pair of socks…

Dear Reader,

We piled a lot into the last weekend, didn’t we? Americans celebrated a new federal holiday, Juneteenth, and we also celebrated Father’s Day. Yea!

I wish I could tell you I did something mind-blowing for either occasion, but I was otherwise obligated. So obligated that I neglected to show respect for fathers on any of my social media accounts. My oops!

So to all the real fathers out there, I want to wish you — all the best, and may your families be blessed.

Did you catch what I wrote?

“Real fathers.”

Am I the only person who too often ascribes “real” to fathers?

Of course not.

We (as a society) don’t discriminate against mothers that way. We usually assume that all mothers are the greatest. Right? I mean, mothers have done the laborious work of carrying, for approximately nine months, this growing seed that feeds off of the mother’s body to create a child that will slide through a birth canal and be pushed out into the world. Indeed, a woman’s work is hard. So we cheer in reverence, hooray for mothers!!!!

They deserve a holiday. Well, at least some of them deserve a holiday. And y’all know I am telling the truth. While I don’t intend to be a downer, we must admit that there are some seriously poor excuses for mothers out there. Am I right, again?

Specifically, but without calling names, we have all heard about women who have driven their kids into lakes, women who have left the security of one family to begin a new one with their teenage student. And what about the women who have kids to get a check? You know, the ones called gold diggers and other unkind words. Even so, regardless of those nefarious acts (minus the first one), come Mother’s Day, someone somewhere will make them feel good about performing a natural act, whether they really are a loving and nurturing parent or not.

Happy Juneteenth Day!

The nationwide celebration from slavery begins today and so much more. Dear Reader, As Americans we can celebrate that we live in the only nation that fought a war to end slavery! So why aren’t we celebrating Jubilee Day, too, as a nation? For as long as I can remember we (members of the NAACP)Continue reading “Happy Juneteenth Day!”
